    I’m trying to find a video of a little terrier dogs being trained to leave cats alone. We adopted an amazing 1 yr old jack russell (still intact) who was great with previous owner’s cats but if given the chance, he’s going after mine like they’re stuffed animals. We already booked his surgery and been clicker training him, exercise, play, etc, but please tell me the neuter surgery will do the trick! 😥

  2. absurdistsloth

    Veronica is just the cutest!! 😍 she really takes to your training, and I have a feeling her and Inertia will be besties pretty quick (or are already besties at this point) 😆

  3. Nancy Press

    I love all of these videos and feel that I have learned an enormous amount. But I do wonder about the criticisms from other dog trainers that these methods won’t work with dogs that have aggression issues with other dogs or humans. I am hoping that Zak can demonstrate that positive methods work even with dogs that have these issues.

  4. The Migraine Warrior

    Using your videos, my 18-month-old pup now heads to his crate on cue when we say “Go to bed!” He lays down and waits for his nighttime biscuits (3 small Teddy Bear shaped biscuits) and nearly always sleeps all night! If he barks, we know it’s time for a quick bathroom break but he goes back in and goes to sleep afterwards. We always keep one of his indestructible toys in the crate with him and sometimes you can even tell that he’s awake and chewing without any distress. Daytime is a bit more challenging but he’s getting better about being left alone in the daytime. Love this series and you guys! 💜

    Really appreciate that to our show problems and solutions. Really helps seeing Veronica grow

  6. robin Harris05

    When do we stop giviving treats for pottying outside. My pup is 3 months. He’s very food oriented.

  7. Shanley Mello

    Another GREAT episode. Looking forward to the next one.

  8. Promise Paws

    This is awesome!! You are such a great trainer with little Veronica. She’s a lucky girl to have the best kind of training right off the bat as a young dog!! I know she will be the best and most well behaved dog after she goes through her training. You’re so incredible, by far my favorite dog trainer forever!!❤️💕

  9. Skittle Bag

    Great video! Is it possible for you to make video about the supplies (collars,leashes,etc) you use with Veronica and inertia?

  10. Apple Opps

    She’s so little! 🥹

  11. Mandy Luna

    Great work!! She’s doing pretty good for a pup!

  12. Maggie

    Make the crate more cosy inside it.. a tiny little bed she can climb in to within it.. make half of the floor newspaper… so she then looks for the nice bed, and not the newspaper. The cage doesn’t look that comforting for a young pup.. (just some suggestions.). also a marrow bone will help her settle in there.. been there with small dogs.. they are different in my opinion to bigger dogs to train!.

  13. Dean Murphy

    I gave my dogs a treat every time I put them in the grate. Worked out great. Now they jump into the grate when I get ready to leave for work in the mornings. Enjoyed the video. We got a new dog recently. Going to watch the videos as y’all continue training Veronica.

  14. Sarvesh Ayre

    My 6 months old Lab sleeps all night in the crate without any issue but wakes up at 530 am and starts barking loudly. Can anyone please suggest ways to stop this habit?

  15. raxovu

    hey zak, i love your videos and was just wondering if you’re going to be introducing veronica to angela at some point, and if you will it be part of a video?

  16. Tracey Hart

    My puppy barked when he heard your puppy. 🙂

    Your channel & books enabled me to train my 9 week old golden retriever perfectly I followed what you done step by step and your training methods worked wonders. I’m going to be picking her up a little sister soon and can’t wait to start the process all over again 🤍

    The other dog is beautiful and gorgeous!🥰🐕‍🦺🥰

    What a beautiful gorgeous puppy dog!🥰🐶🥰

    Hang in there with crate training! I had never had any issues crate training a dog until I got one of the ones I have now. I thought she just wasn’t going to be a dog you could not crate. But I kept at it and she now tolerates her crate quite well. She doesn’t go in on her own accord, but will go in and lie down and relax on cue. While she doesn’t “love” it, she isn’t stressed about it and will happily go in with a nice lick mat. When we get home, she’s still relaxing in the crate. (BTW, we had an Irish Wolfhound who had figured out how to open her crate and if we left her in the crate, she’d open it and come out on her own. The first time we returned home to her out of her crate, we figured we hadn’t closed it properly. Next time we left, we made sure it was properly closed. Got home, she’s at the door to greet us. So we taped it. Yep, she was opening the crate herself). And leave it is such an important lesson! We were out on a walk the other day and someone had thrown out some french fries from McDonald’s. Really tempting, but all I had to say was “leave it” and they happily left the french fries alone.

    How do I teach puppy tricks/leave it/ sit when all he wants to do is run up and jump on me? Lol (12 weeks)

  22. Yann Le Marec

    I just took in a 17 week old English Cocker Spaniel pup that spent all of her life in a shed. It’s been five days now and thanks to your work, we had the best time. She might be tiny, she was the runt of the litter, but she’s brave and sweet. She picks up really fast and she even teaches me about how she works. She is the single best decision I made in my life. Thank you

    Inertia was sooo adorable sharing her favorite shark toy with her new little sister. 😍 It makes me so happy to see the whole family bonding. Veronica is a smarty pants she got the leave it pretty quickly. ❤

  24. Matthildur

    This brings me back to last fall when I got my Whippet puppy. She cried so hard if I took as much as a step away from her that I was at one point convinced I’d never be able to leave her home alone.
    Now she runs into the crate if she sees me with her Kong and sleeps quietly while waiting for us to get back.

  25. Jen Kirby

    I had a fabric crate for my pup and she settled quickly.
    Not that that means anything. Another (older) dog ripped her way out of a fabric crate.

  26. R. Durante

    I get more excited as each lesson progresses because I really want to learn how you calm and train a super high energy puppy. Thank you for sharing the reality of training a dog.

  27. Potato Fries

    What breed is she

  28. Valla Pink

    you should try to make the crate a little bit more cosy for her I saw one youtuber when she got her puppy she put hot warm bottle looked like a teddy bear 😀 and lot of soft blankets <3

  29. F1nn0180

    We just got an 8 week old cocker spaniel last Friday and I think training is going well so far, but also seems to have bad anxiety when left alone in his crate, which I think we’re slowly ironing out, thanks to your videos! Thanks so much for being such a great help so far- I’m not sure what I would’ve done without your channel!

  30. Here This

    It looks so cute at the “leave-it”-training , when Veronica looked down at the treat , as if she wanted to find out why it is laying there . 🥰

  31. Mia Pulchritudinous

    I need this channel! My 4 month old lab Lucy is digging her way to the center of the world from the lawn.

  32. Mo So

    What brand harness is that? Try to find one for my small(er) dog that doesn’t chafe at contact points, but also won’t slip off.

  33. Anna Stewart Cleaver

    What type of vest is your puppy wearing?

  34. kavita deva

    Hi Bree, I love when you’re in the
    Videos! QUESTION……… ZACK, I noticed when you were doing the exercise of leave it when you wanted Veronica to look at you you used the word HERE. And you used it many times for her to look into your eyes. HERE. And then you changed it to LOOK. And I’ve noticed in your videos when you’re asking a dog to come to you you’ll say HERE sometimes you’ll say COME. My question is when I was taught to be a dog trainer I was drilled that I was only supposed to use one word for a certain behavior so the dog would not get confused. Can you please tell me why do you use the word HERE and then change it to LOOK in the same session? Doesn’t that confuse Veronica. thank you so much I hope you’ll answer this question. I am training a new puppy to be a service dog. Thanks for the video.

  35. Eric Swells

    4 syllables is a lot for a dog’s name. 😉

  36. Ryan Moody and Lola the pug

    How adorable was Inertia with Veronica I cant get over it, she is so loving to all the dogs you’ve helped Zak your truly incredible 🐾😀

  37. Nessa

    Thank you for these videos! I love your positive and loving training style. How do I train two puppy siblings? Do I lock one away while training the other? Or try training them together?

    The first seems cruel, either if they are in another room or in a crate watching. The latter seems like a recipe for disaster!

    Grateful for your guidance 🙏

    Hey I’m grad student that wants to get a pit bull mix puppy in a little over a year love watching your videos it’s been helping me kinda see what I need to do for when I get my first dog my question to use for someone who has never had a pet what are some things you would suggest for me to do before I decide to go get a puppy

    Your channel helped me train my GSD puppy in 2020, and she is literally the perfect dog now! I’m getting a new puppy in 2 weeks, so this series is perfectly timed for me. I need a refresher 🤣 Juno is so well behaved, that I’m spoiled now!

  41. Sunny🌿

    My mom’s boyfriend has a 9 week old and she’s a very smart shark and chinchilla. Her owner’s kind of halfway between the positive reinforcement and negative punishment training methods, so the puppy (Katniss) isn’t doing that well with bite inhibition or the barking situation. Zak’s videos have helped me work with Katniss, and she’s impressing EVERYONE with her progress. She bites and barks less, she walks on and off the leash, and she’s progressing in “leave it” and “come” *extremely* fast. I’ve been watching Zak’s videos for years, waiting for the day I get to use what I’ve learned, and now I finally can😁

  42. Totally

    Amazing video
